Numerous studies have been conducted to learn what motivates employees. When asked to list the 10 things most important to their workers, managers almost always put money, commissions and bonuses at the top of the list.

If you’ve studied management or psychology, you know that workers often say these things are more important than money: 1) They want to feel respected by their managers. 2) They want to feel important to the company they work for. 3) They want to feel like their work is meaningful — that it makes life better for somebody.
